In July, my office team and I went along to the Hermitage Garden, a horticulture project for autistic young people and adults, based at the Hermitage Golf Course, Braid Hills Drive and run by Autism Initiatives, after it was vandalised for a second time in a month.
My team and I wanted to do anything we could to help as soon as we heard about the mindless vandalism that had temporarily closed this great community project. We thoroughly enjoyed mucking in and a huge thank you to the staff team at Autism Initiatives for taking the time to show us around. We would be happy to help in any way we can in the future.
Autism Initiatives are delighted to announce that the Hermitage Garden has now reopened. However, the charity is calling for all those in the local community who would still like to support the Hermitage Garden to either contact the Service Manager, Rona.Mackinnon@aiscotland.org.uk, or to donate to the following page https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/lisanne-valente.
